Knitted your own little world! This pattern is perfect for making juggling balls, tree decorations and ornaments for the globetrotters in your life.

The pattern is laid out clearly so you can knit up your globe with ease. I give step by step instructions with photos for the tricker parts of the pattern, guidance on how to sew in ends and how to work with multiple colours. I have written this pattern so that anyone who hasn’t tackled knitting in the round will feel confident in picking up their needles to take on the world!
